Underlying Borders (Co-curated with Gerardo Camargo)
Mexican Cultural Institute, Washington, D.C.
March 14 - May 29, 2019
Underlying Borders is an exhibition that brings together the work of five artists with an experience of migration
between Mexico and the United States, who, from their own experience as migrants, work from perspectives that seek to blur and interweave elements through and across borders, drawing on the tension that exists between places.
The participating artists explore concepts related to identity, culture, and nationality through a variety of approaches and processes. Their work is a manifestation of their experience within these transition zones. They challenge us to consider, from distinct points of view, how we think of memory, the body, stereotypes, and implicit violence in our intertwined countries.
The Illusion of Control (Co-curated with Gerardo Camargo)
Hermitage Gallery, McLean, VA
July 22 - August 22, 2016
Camargo and Schroeder work with similar ideas in their work, questioning and playing with the concept of control through subject matter, media, and process. Inspired by environmental and social phenomena in states of evolution, they use intuitive processes in which they fluctuate between being in and out of control, interested in how errors and inconsistencies can determine new structures.
Personal Space (Co-curated with Gerardo Camargo)
Pieter, Los Angeles, CA
In this exhibit,artists Alison Lee Schroeder and Gerardo Camargo explore the physical and psychological space they share in everyday family life. They speak to us from and of a fluctuating identity that manifests itself in a process of suggestion, modification, surrender, and substitution, in which it becomes clear that nothing draws to a true end, but rather forms part of a continuous cycle. Through drawings, paintings, and objects, the couple invites us into their personal space, a soup of nostalgia, pain, joy, and humor that is both unique and universal.
